Any of you out there look longingly at the packages of bacon in the grocery store, and think, “unless I invite people over, I can’t buy this, because I’ll eat the whole darn package and it’s way too much for just me?”
Yeah. That was me too.
But I was bound and determined to figure a way out of this Bacon Conundrum – I was a single gal, living alone, loving it, and Wanting. Bacon. Dammit.
You have the awesome opportunity to learn my tried-and-true trick on how to have your Bacon, and Eat it too (in reasonable serving sizes.)
First: Roll the Bacon into serving-sized bundles. (I roll two slices at a time.)
2. Ready for the next step. Always use a plastic cutting board to work with raw meat. I dedicate one of my cutting boards to raw meats only, to avoid cross-contamination.
3. I put the bacon in two plastic baggies. Air is your enemy in the freezer- squeeze out as much as you can!
4. Freeze and Voila- Two slices of Bacon - perfect for one person!
The bacon thaws very quickly. I try to use all of the frozen bacon within one month.
Another tip: the way to get into a dude’s heart is through his stomach. What they forgot to tell you is that the stomach REALLY responds to bacon.
Isn’t it about time you brought more bacon into your life? 🙂
